The locals

Finally finished my major exams for the year!

Did some celebratory birding this afternoon...
Didn't turn up too much, just the usual gulls and geese.

Saw all three of the local Glaucous Gulls (2 juveniles, 1 adult) today...

Mallard... I was getting desperate for something to photograph :p

Saturday is the Kitchener CBC. I'll have a couple hours to spare to help count birds at Columbia Lake (not that there's very many to count) and then I'm back to Newfoundland for 3 weeks.

Some things I have a decent chance of seeing in NL and still need for my year list:

Pink-footed Goose
Purple Sandpiper
Red Crossbill

and maybe Yellow-throated Warbler if it's still around?
